“Nice park, great view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Worth a visit, specially if you have time to spend there and even better if you are fit enough to walk up and down the trails!

“Stunning vista”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Beautiful view. Went there on a drizzly day and had the place to ourselves with just the mists amidst the valleys, stunning. It had rained heavily the days before so we couldn't go down to the river itself, but even without this it was worth the R$8 each. The normal tours or buses don't go here so you'll have to hire a car or guide to get here.

“Beautifull - worth driving the unpaved road to the park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

When you enter the park by car, after a reasonable drive through beatifull landscapes on the continuation of the Caracol road, which is partly unpaved, you don't even imagine the beauty of the view from the belvederes located inside the park. From all of them, you see the meandering river well below in the valley, and the forests and hills surrounding it.
Come early, so you can also hike down to the valley. There is a big picnic area at the car park. Excellent place with children.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

We went to Caracol Park and were already impressed by the view. Now, Ferradura Park is even better: breathtaking views over the Serra Gaucha. The place is about 15 km from Canela and by car easy to reach. The facilities there are very basic and this makes is so beautiful. There are even churrasco places where you can have your own BBQ. As it is a bit further from the other tourist attractions, it is more quiet and you can really enjoy this impressive panorama. For me the number one place to visit in Gramado/Canela.
